One child is dead after a Wednesday afternoon single-vehicle crash at Interstate 565 and Jordan Lane.

Another child is in critical condition and the adult male driver is in serious condition, said Don Webster, Huntsville Emergency Medical Services Inc. spokesman, on Wednesday. They have been taken to Huntsville Hospital.

Huntsville police said Thursday that the driver is the grandfather of the children and he is hospitalized in stable condition now. 

We're working to learn the identities of the individuals.
